stating_the_obvious (1340413) writes "Dan Remis, an unemployed equity analyst in New York is suing his wedding photographer for 48,000 dollars to recreate the bouquet toss of his 2003 wedding. The 48K is necessary to fly principals (including his ex-wife — address unknown) from Latvia to recreate the ceremony.

Justice Doris Ling-Cohan of State Supreme Court in Manhattan finds guidance from Babs, "This is a case in which it appears that the ‘misty watercolor memories’ and the ‘scattered pictures of the smiles ... left behind’ at the wedding were more important than the real thing”

According to the Times, "Mr. Remis’s lawyer works for Goodwin Procter, where Mr. Remis’s father, Shepard M. Remis, is a litigation partner. The younger Mr. Remis has testified that he is paying his lawyer himself.""

+ - Protestors Disrupt Murdoch Hearing->

Submitted by stating_the_obvious
stating_the_obvious (1340413) writes "As the last questioner, Wendy Murdoch, was getting started with questions, an protestor attempted to attack Rupert Murdoch. Camera cut away immediately and hearings were paused for 10 minutes.

What is it about our society that has people feeling so disenfranchised from participation and yet so entitled to disrupt activities."
